This month in Cleaning Business Today we started a new direction with the Cleaner's Corner.  Each month we will provide a video and training hand out that you can use with your staff.  If you have a staff meeting hand out the flyer and play the video.  If you do not have meeting put the hand out in with their checks and email them the video to watch.  This month's topic is acids.  How to use them and the dangers to pose in a home.

Cleaning Business Today is here!

Cleaning Business Today is owned and managed by two people that still own cleaning companies.   It was created to be a publication we would want to read.  It reflects the joys and challenges that we face as owners in this industry and I hope you enjoy it.  Tom and I have been working on it for months.

Announcing Cleaning Business Today

The blogging has gotten quiet becuase I have been working on an even bigger project.  I am excited to share some big news with you! In April, we’ll be launching Cleaning Business Today, a free monthly digital magazine for cleaning professionals. CBT’s articles will provide actionable information and analysis on a wide range of business and cleaning topics. We’ll cover startups, operations and finance, leadership, sales and marketing, technology, and innovation as well as offer industry news and events, useful infographics and a product spotlight. We’ll inspire you with success stories and enlighten you with expert advice on your cleaning questions.


We plan to tackle other important issues with a unique perspective that gives you, the cleaning professional, information that improves both your business and life. Throughout the year, we’ll be looking at topics such as marketing for the slow season, using GPS technology in your business, balancing life and work, the ROI for sustainable business and cleaning practices, cleaning for health, building customer loyalty, and so much more. We look forward to interacting with our subscriber community around these important conversation starters, so look for CBT to be much more than pages in a magazine. We want to be thought leaders who help facilitate changes that will benefit all stakeholders in the residential cleaning industry. We hope you’ll join the conversation.
